North Buttes and River Loop
December 9, 1990
This was a walk that had everything—except sunshine.
True Obsidians Shirley Froyd, Mae Jackson, Bonnie Manheim, Susan Stewart and leader Virginia Prouty
walked for four hours in the rain.
Up Corum Butte, through Happy Lane to a surprise park.
Again up, to Gillespie Butte, explored the old cemetery, checked out one of Eugene’s newest
parks, then down the hill to the magnificent Christmas tree in Valley River Inn.
And then, an hour’s walk along the river.
The wildlife aspect of our walk consisted of many quacking ducks and geese looking for a handout.
The loop was completed by crossing the Owosso Bridge and finding our cars in the K-mart parking lot.
